I Don’t Wish My Worst En£My To Experience This- Husband Accuses Hospital Of Causing His Pregnant Wife And Newborn Son’s D£@Th Due To Medical Negligence

A husband who lost his wife and their newborn son has called out the hospital, while stating that their d£@ths could have been avoided if hospital staff did their jobs right.

Prince Ovwiomodiowho, a registered nurse anesthetist, narrated how his wife Mrs Loveth Ovwiomodiowho, 35, was in labour for two days at R-Jolad hospital located in Omotoye Estate, Orile-Agege, Lagos State.

He said his wife was assigned to Dr. Marcus Mbakwe, the consultant obstetrician, who his wife continued to see throughout her pregnancy.

His wife, who already gave birth to a daughter in 2020, was as healthy as could be and she had no known associated history. He said she also was diligent in attending her antenatal appointments.

She went into labour in the early hours of March 7, 2024, and was taken to the hospital where things went downhill.

According to chats he shared with LIB, Dr. Marcus was not in the hospital when his wife was brought in and they were communicating with the doctor via social media.

His wife was left in the care of a midwife and junior doctor. He added that Dr. Marcus did not examine his wife before giving instructions to the junior doctor to start induction, which led to compl!cations.

When his wife was struggling to have a vaginal birth, they delayed to take her to the theatre for CS and when they did, her situation had declined crit!cally.

The baby already suffered prolonged birth asphyxia from delayed interventions and d!£d.

“I shouted and screamed, asking for Dr Marcus the consultant. I could not get answer from anyone.”

His wife lost so much bl00d. Videos and photos shared with LIB show litres of the patient’s bl00d on the floor of the theatre as doctors tried to save her. Sadly, she passed on too on March 8, 2024.

The bereaved husband is now calling on the state government to take action against the hospital.

He has also petitioned the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetoku, over his late wife’s missing uterus and his baby’s placenta.
